Hello again on another Friday morning. Hope everyone is doing OK and sending special good wishes to anyone who has joined the community this week.
It’s another Free For All today, so please post whatever you like that meets our community guidelines, but once again my own thoughts are with caring, and today I’d like to give a special warm greeting to all of you who are looking after loved ones with brain injuries.
Quite often we get caught up here in the community with dementia of various kinds, as it’s such a common condition in older age, but I am aware that there are those of you who are dealing with other conditions too and I know that one of these is brain injury.
During the week, while browsing online, I happened to land on a really good Australian website dealing with this. It's called ‘Synapse’ and covers so many aspects of brain injury, really clearly. Some of the information given is geared towards Australia but it also has lots of general information too.
If any of you would like to take a look it’s at synapse.org.au/understandin... and it includes aspects of the special challenges of caring for someone with brain injury.
Generally speaking, other than getting my hair cut quite drastically (it had got really long and unruly), it's been a pretty mundane week in most respects.
There was a rude awakening yesterday morning when the door buzzer went really early and it was the delivery of a chest of drawers which we weren't expecting till next week. We had nowhere to put it as we haven’t disposed of the old one yet so it was a really disorganised start to the day! We’ve managed to lodge it in a corner for now and will have to sort it all out over the weekend!
How about all of you? I guess that anyone who has young people around them will have seen them going off for a new school year and I wish them all well. I’ve seen lots of pictures on social media of my small-fry relatives looking smart and proud in their brand new school uniforms and setting off for their first day.
Well, please let us all know how it went for you this week, good or bad and here’s to a relaxing weekend, if we can! Take care everyone.
